22. Mahant of Akshar Mandir

Shastriji Maharaj appointed Yogiji Maharaj as the Mahant of Akshar Mandir, Gondal, on the tenth day of the bright half of Vaishakh, VS 1990 (1934). Despite being the head, Yogiji Maharaj performed the maha-puja of Akshar Mandir, maintained the accounts ledger and attended to the needs and comforts of visitors. Once he was found cooking the meal because the sadhu who served as a cook was not there. When asked why he was cooking he replied, "Because the sadhu who cooks has fallen ill. Today, by the grace of God I have got this rare chance of cooking and serving God. For a long time I had been thinking of preparing food for Thakorji." Even though the sadhu who normally cooked the meals was loitering Yogiji Maharaj did not complain but took up the service himself.
